The Arkansas baseball team is back down to .500 on the season (14-14). The Hogs stranded nine runners on base and managed only six hits in a 2-0 loss to Missouri State Tuesday evening at Baum Stadium.A sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the fifth inning proved to be the difference for Missouri State.

James Teague threw 4.0 innings, retired 10 straight batters and recorded a career-high five strikeouts before the Bears started a rally in the fifth inning and scored their only runs of the night.

The Razorbacks had chances all night at the plate, stranding nine base runners, including eight of those in scoring position in the loss. Arkansas loaded the bases with one out in the sixth inning, but a Rick Nomura strikeout and Carson Shaddy groundout ended the threat.

“There were three and four at bats with runners in scoring position with less than two outs and we didn’t make contact. Give credit to their pitches but we didn’t do a very good job either. The positive is that our pitchers held them to two runs and got us out of a couple of jams.”

Arkansas returns to action this weekend, traveling to Auburn for a Friday-Sunday series with the Tigers at Plainsman Park.
